8825 64bit Driver

I have been forced to upgrade my CAD platform to a 64bit OS.  I need a driver for my Xerox 8825 that will work on a 64bit Windows 7.  Anyone know a fix for this problem?

Re: 8825 64bit Driver

this can be usefull maybe? :

 

Note: AutoDesk AutoCAD 2007 and AutoCAD 2008 drivers are included on the AutoCAD installation media. Please see the AutoDesk AutoCAD installation media for details on the installation of the latest Xerox Wide Format HDI drivers.

Re: 8825 64bit Driver

Thanks for the reply.  I have been getting no help on this issue from anyone.  

Since I have a Win7 64bit, my plotter driver is incompatable now.  I looked up the driver install in AutoCAD 2012 and it looks like that HDI is for setting up the default config for your plotter/printer device. Here is a copy of what the help says about the HDI feature:

 

With the HDI system printer driver, you can use the plotter or printer you have configured with Windows.

You can use any printing device supported by Windows (Windows system printer).

You can use the HDI system printer driver to choose printer defaults for AutoCAD LT that differ from the defaults for other Windows applications.

The Autodesk system printer driver supports raster output. However, the amount of memory in the printing device limits the ability of the device connected as the system printer to output raster and vector data sent by AutoCAD LT.

If you have multiple Windows system printers, you can select the device used to plot from AutoCAD LT. For example, you might use a LaserJet printer for word processing documents and a BubbleJet for AutoCAD LT drawings.

For best results, use the Windows system printer and AutoCAD LT plotter drivers as follows:

  • Use the Autodesk HDI driver appropriate to your printer/plotter in preference to the Windows system printer, unless you have an Océ or Hewlett-Packard DesignJet plotter. Océ and HP have supplied system printer drivers optimized for AutoCAD use.
  • Use the Windows system printer for output devices without pens, such as laser printers.

Setting up the Windows system printer for AutoCAD LT consists of two parts:

  • Configuring the system printer in Windows (see the Microsoft documentation for your operating system)
  • Configuring the system printer as the AutoCAD LT plotter using the Add-a-Plotter Wizard shortcut icon

 

I am at a loss of what to do.  I need the 8825 to work real bad.

Re: 8825 64bit Driver

So, I guess I am SOL?  No one has a fix for this?  I will never buy onother Xerox if I cannot get this one up and running.  

I plan on buying a new wide format for color prints, and need to keep this one for black.  I suppose I will get an Oce instead.

Re: 8825 64bit Driver

is it possible your machine is too old for new drivers? have you tried calling xerox for support?

Re: 8825 64bit Driver

It is not supported, but the 88xx will sometimes run with the version 14 510 drivers.  The 510 replaced the 88xx series and some of the controller models were the same.  It would come down to which model of the AccXES controller is attached and if the firmware is as up-to-date as was possible for that controller.  If you see your model controller in the list for the 510 series though, you may want to try that driver.

Re: 8825 64bit Driver

No, I have not found a solution.  Have had no reply from xerox, as they have discontinued their wide format printers.  Also, I have had xerox wide format techs from a local repro graphics dealer look into this extensively.  They have found no fix.

Now, with all that said, I do still use the 8825.  I had my IT group make a mirror image of my XP hard drive from previouse computer.  They then made that mirror image into a "virtual computer".  It runs in the background on my 64bit OS when I need it to print to the wide format.  

The down side to this is that I must still save down AutoCAD drawings to AutoCAD 2007 to print them direct from CAD.  This sucks.  I still had the AutoCAD 2007  on the mirror image drive, so I have to 'save down' then open in AutoCAD 2007 to print.  OR, I must print to a PDF and open in adobe reader on the virtual to print to 8825.

It works, just sucks.  But, I havent had to buy another $10-30k wide format.   :>/

Re: 8825 64bit Driver

I have an 8825 (serial number EV4), and I had the same problem (no Win7 64-bit support).  I used the 510 (serial number YKE) driver and it works fine.  It is the FreeFlow Accxes Drivers v 14.0.4:

Good luck!

YES 510 Driver works fine with 8825 wide format systems: just follow these steps

  1. Accxes Client Tool v.10.0.4 – installation .exe file located on server S:\
    1. S:\Xerox\AccXES10.0.4-A_HPGL2_ENU.exe
      1. NOTE: HPGL2_ENU driver required!
      2. Extract Files to Temp Folder on C:\
  • Run S:\Xerox\Install.exe

 In Accxes Client Tools > Device Manager > Create New Device >

    1. Device Name = 8825 Scanner
    2. IP Address = 10.1.1.74
  • Default Printer = Print to File
  1. Default Scanner = 8825 Scanner
  2. Disable Driver Signing:
    1. Shift +Restart
    2. Choose and Option = Troubleshoot > Advance Options > Startup Settings
    3. Allow Restart > Select 7) Disable Driver Signature Enforcement

 

  1. Xerox 8825 Driver = xesgdi11.hdi *xesgid#.hdi may vary with AutoCad LT Version
    1. S:\Xerox\xesgdi11.hdi
    2. Copy to C:\programfiles\autodesk\autocad lt 2014\drv\xesgdi11.hdi
  2. Install Printer
    1. Open Settings > Devices > Printers & Scanners
    2. Add Printer > The Printer I want isn’t listed
    3. Add a local printer or network printer with manual settings
    4. Create new port > Standard TCP/IP Port
    5. Hostname or IP address = 1.1.74
    6. Install the printer driver > Select Have Disk…
      1. Administration S:\Xerox\Drivers\HPGL2\64Bit\500\ENU\Accxes_500.inf
